Welcome to 2024 on Sciety. Here's The latest in preprint innovations from sciety.org, the home of public preprint evaluation and curation.

🚀 What's new

Part of Sciety's role in the world is to make sense of the variety of preprint evaluation and associated metadata and turn this into something that is valuable to readers of the research, encouraging more people to share evaluated preprints within their work.

We ended 2023 by focussing on reducing the feasibility risks of adding new groups to Sciety, which will set us up for representing a much broader range of preprint review in future.

🔭 What's next

We know the world can change overnight, but here's a flavour of what we expect to be exploring on Sciety in the next 6 months:

  • Group members will be able to publicise their own collections of preprints as part of the group activity. Currently individual users on Sciety are not associated with their groups.
  • Targeted Google Advertising promotion will enable increased visibility for reviewing groups on Sciety
  • The ability to generate and save personal searches/feeds will contribute towards an individuals tailored experience.
  • Broader representation of article activities; video and social media interactions
  • Profile customisation
  • Improved discovery of related evaluated preprints
  • Broader representation of preprint metadata
  • A DocMaps API update
  • More curating and reviewing groups
  • COAR notify implementation, letting Sciety tell more services when review activity has taken place.
  • A potential collaboration with Open Knowledge Maps to increase the visibility of preprints in research discovery
